In high school and not interested in dating
But I notice that as comfortable as I am with that, there are some people who aren't.This can be both hilarious and exhausting, especially when they make their opinions known: This confounds me.If I'm talking to you already, then by the very definition of lonely, I am not.It's not like people who are single are on some magical island in a glass bubble where they have no contact with friends and family.Maybe because I have friends that are so awesome that I've never felt like a third wheel, but also because I don't mind taking my time.Everything doesn't have to happen for me in the next five years, or even the next fifteen. A lesson I've learned in the murky field of dating in my twenties: if you're not attracted to someone on the first date, you are probably not going to change your mind. For both of your sakes, just drop it before it gets messy. It's not like a "thing"; I'm not out on some crusade to be single.
If I felt lonely, I would make changes to not feel lonely.And if that wasn't enough to sway me to stop dating for awhile, I handled it really immaturely.Like crazy texts from your ex immaturely, and I consider myself a very sane and rational human being.I have worked hard for the things I've wanted to make of myself, and being able to make snap decisions that I knew wouldn't drastically affect another person has been crucial to every little success.And as archaic as this sounds, I can't date people I don't see myself marrying. I'm just simply not attracted to people I don't see a future with, and right now I'm at a place in my life where I'm not ready to commit to anyone anyway.
When I meet someone I want to spend the rest of my life with, I want to already be the person I set out to be, or at least have a much clearer vision of how to get there, and I have no desire in wasting my time or other people's time along the way.
